Thread: Level-D 767 New VC Textures

  1. #1

    Default Level-D 767 New VC Textures

    hello all! So I got the Zinertek VC Upgrade, but to me the quality was atrocious. the textures just seemed blurry, like they were resized from a smaller image. sooooo I took the Captainsim 757 VC Textures I recolored a month or so ago and Merged them with the Level-D 767.I think this result brings it up to standards a little more. what do you think?
    note: in order to share them publicly, I will most likely have to replace the remaining textures from the zinertek pack for copyright reasons.

    Whatever you do, DON'T.

    Remember what happened with the PMDG 737 VC textures?

    yes I remember that very well. to even make it possible, I will have to remove all the copyrighted zinertek files and replace them with the level-D textures, edited of course, and then approach captainsim about letting me share the 757 textures on the 757 and approach level-D about sharing. this way others can enjoy them as well. either way the biggest issue will to even get a reply from both devs...

    Very nice indeed, Josh! Captainsim and Level-D should take advantage of the job you did on their aircraft/panel, keep this for their own work and give you the credit for the panel work!

    Yes, it's one thing to borrow and make changes to your liking for yourself, but, the moment you offer it up to someone else or the general public, then you have stepped on the toes of those who worked so hard in their offerings! Just be careful! If you are up front with the developers and they say okay, not a problem, you are okay!

    I like your work! I am sure they will too!

    yes. this is exactly the reason I'll remove all the Zinertek textures. i'd love to share but really dont want another email from a company's legal team haha. I didn't think about that side then. I certainly do now! I hope Captainsim will allow me to use their VC textures for the level-d.

    Well, you could always contact Zinertek and mention that since your product is decades old and nobody mostly likely is buying it, and if they are, it’s overpriced for a 17 year old product, can I use them and share with the remaining few in the FS2004 community as freeware?

    Of course PMDG wouldn’t do it as they’d want to charge for every single update, hot fix and mention of a new product despite nobody buying the FS9 version - why would you with the iFly - so what’s the problem?

    Or you could just remove it. But it’s nice to first email and make a statement then point them to this forum and post as to how selfish, greedy and obnoxious they are.

    Or you could not do either.

    i'll definitely email zinertek and see about sharing them. maybe they wouldn't have a problem with it? if they do then i'll remove all their textures and replace them with the original Level-D.

    while I don't agree with PMDG saying it was "competition" because if they think their FS2004 737 is competition with the ifly, then I pity them. i've flown both. the PMDG for fs9 is way off. the ifly textures aren't compatible with the FSX version anyway so really there was no competition. I wish they could've made an agreement with ifly to offer the textures for sale for like 5.00 or so for the FS9 737 ONLY. no competition, and a boost for both ifly and PMDG.

    in any regard, I don't want to end up on the naughty list for a developer. that wouldn't go too well.

    Damn fine job. I'd be proud to fly with those textures in my LD767!

    Hopefully a sensible outcome.
    If not, and if you have a few mil lying around, there’s always the Supreme Court option. Or even the European Court of Human Rights.
